    Hi Nexus-6 Leon: we all know the quote, but I want to highlight some tricky parts:

    MW Featured Question (3/2/2015): “Forrest, you said you made two trips from your car to hide the treasure. Besides walking, did you use any other methods of transportation to get back and forth between the car and the hide? Thanks, Edgar”

    FF: “Edgar, your wording of the question prompts me to pause and wonder if I can answer it candidly, yet correctly. Were all of the evidence truly known, and I answered in the positive, you might say I was prevaricating, by some definitions of the word. And if I answered in the negative, you may claim that I was quibbling. So I will stay quiet on the subject. Thanks for the question anyway. f”

    Note that Edgar didn't write other MODES of transportation, he wrote methods. Walking, climbing, skipping, hopping, running, crawling, wading and scooting are all different methods of transportation that do not involve vehicles. Forrest seizes on this at the beginning of his answer, placing the blame for his wordy response squarely on Edgar: your wording of the question.
    I guess if he said that if he answered truthfully we would think he was quibbling so perhaps it's just just hopping or a skip like Rose suggested. Or perhaps at some point he stumbled! Use of a space portal definitely would not be quibbling!

          Most of them thar birds looked like there butts were too heavy and they needed to drop a load.
          Ain't no bad landings if you make it down alive - just maybe unprofessional ones.
          And prob depends on the condition of the landing strip too.
          Pilots with lighter loads always get the breaks.

                I could see wading through water being an issue or even taking a raft across briefly because 99 percent of the trip is walking. So if he said he also took a boat people would assume a longer trip.

                As for the original question, it is definitely not buried. It would be way too difficult to find. It is covered by a rock though. It's why he says to bring gloves. The gloves will protect your hands and give you a better grip. Plluuuuss "tarry scant' aka blackened flat slab of rock.

                      I'm sitting in the blind WAITING and WATCHING - doubt I will get a shot off as I am still in training and just using a rubber ducky.

                        Speaking of birds flying... Wasn't there a hint in TTOTC concerning WWWH?

                          I'm not sure, but I did see a post about the pictures with the horses and with mountains in the background...

                              Latin praevaricat- ‘walked crookedly, deviated’

                              Quib. Noun. (plural quibs) (archaic) A quip or gibe. - A jibe (US) or gybe (Britain) is a sailing maneuver whereby a sailing vessel reaching downwind turns its stern through the wind, such that the wind direction changes from one side of the boat to the other.

                              This is what got me from Yawking to Tilting, as in 'Ravens Yawking', which may or may not be correct.

                                He waded, or took a boat, but most likely waded.
